LA Galaxy star David Beckham has said that he is very confident that the club can overturn a poor start to the season to win the MLS title this season. Much was expected of Los Angeles Galaxy at the start of the season when they signed Robbie Keane from England. However, things have not turned out so well in the first few matches of the season when LA Galaxy suffered surprising defeat at the hands of lower opposition. Now, they seem to be slowly coming back to form, which has been largely due to the return of both David Beckham and Landon Donovan to form.
After getting a point from the match against Dallas on Saturday, David Beckham said that he is being positive about the whole situation surrounding the club. He also said that he expects LA Galaxy to start competing in matches sooner rather than later. Robbie Keane missed the penalty in the 1-1 draw with Dallas, which meant that the club was unable to get all three points from the match. As a result, they remain in the seventh position in the table has played seven matches in this season. In the Western Conference, the San Jose earthquakes continue to lead the table with 19 points on board.
“Sometimes it (poor form) happens in soccer and we’ll get it right, we’ll score the goals when we really need to, I’m sure, but we’ll need to pretty soon. Overall, we’ve earned the point tonight at least,” the former England captain said. “There’s no conversation (about the penalty miss). I just told Robbie I wanted him to take it. He did everything right except he just mishit it a little bit. It’s a guy who has taken many penalties and made many penalties and I am sure next time he takes one it’ll go in,” Donovan said.
